P5RD1-VM Missing RAM

I have 1GB DDR RAM and now, only 504Mb are showing up... I looked somethings up on Google and found that whoever has 512Mb with onboard graphics automatically loses 8MB of RAM to the adapter, thus 504+8 = 512Mb, but where have my other 512MB gone? P.S: My PC is now running on a PCI-Express VGA, it's an XFX GeForce 8600GT 512 MB.

Re: P5RD1-VM Missing RAM

Update the BIOS to the latest version (ver.1002 i think), with asus ezFlash.The whole RAM should then appear in windows system properties.

I have a intel 845gvsr board, want to replace a Ram. What type of RAM is suitable for this board?

Your Intel D845GVSR has,

1. Two ram slots.

2.Maximum Amount of ram is 1GB for EACH ram slot.

3.Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GB, (1GB in each ram slot)

4.Uses DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200), OR
DDR Sdram at 533MHz, (PC4200)

This is an example of DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200),|c:1352|&Sort=0&Recs=10

(Not advertising for this website. There are many places to buy ram memory)
512MB + 512MB = 1024MB, or also stated as 1GB
1024MB = 1GB

I have the same problem

Dear! If monitor showes power but not showes display its means that monitor requires heat and it very better if you can give sun-rays. I assure your monitor will work if you do that for 4 hours. Check your monitor sepreatly with another system or computer if it works that means your VGA card not supported so you should change your VGA card but first check your monitor.
Thank You

Motherboard ASUS P5RD1-VM ram problem

More people should complain with Asus support. Checking Asus forums, you'll find there's an obvious problem with a PCI-E video addon + 2 used memory slots. In my case, I had 2Gb (1 + 1), mb with bios version 1104, and it worked fine; when I installed a new PCI-E card, the system was very... very sluggish. Now I have uninstalled 1 memory, I'm using only 1Gb of RAM with the PCI-E card, and it's working well.

Again: checking Asus forum, this is a reported problem, and a bios bug... Asus should release a new bios version, but they seem not to bother, as this is a relatively "old' mb...

Kingston valueram 512mb

How do you mean nothing is showing up?
The fact you can get into BIOS usually means that something is right.

This board can go upto 2GB RAM

look at the kingston configurator page for info and compare it against the memory you bought (exact part numbers are a must). With Windows VIsta Ultimate you should be using 1gb Sticks not 512.
